The game yesterday was a big relief. The Chiefs did exactly what they were supposed to do and spanked the terrible Houston Texans. Larry Johnson was huge and I expect to see him restructure his contract in the off-season when Priest decides to retire.
Trent Green looked good. Tony Gonzalez had almost 100 yards receiving. Even so, my home team has a really tough schedule until the end of the year. (Nothing like the Colts, which is almost a complete cakewalk except for the Seahawks and the Chargers… It’s funny how the NFL makes schedules.)
I’ve been a Chiefs fan ever since I understood football. I remember the great Chiefs teams of the 1990’s with Derrick Thomas, Neil Smith and the like. It’s been a rough last few years and this might not even be the year for them, but they do have some great young players (Jared Allen, Larry Johnson) and I love watching them.
I tend to get pretty into the games, but that’s only because I love them.
